By Robyn Hitchcock:

Uncorrected personality traits
That seem whimsical in a child
May prove to be ugly in
A fully grown adult

Lack of involvement with the father
Or over-involvement with the mother
Can result in lack of ability
To relate to sexual peers

And in homosexual leanings
Narcissism, transsexuality --
Girls from the waist up
Men from the waist down --
Attempts to be your own love object
Reconcile your parents to you
By becoming both at once

Even Marilyn Monroe was a man
But this tends to get over looked
By our mother-fixated
Overweight, sexist media

So, uncorrected personality traits
That seem whimsical in a child
May prove to be ugly in
A fully grown adult

If you give in to them
Every time they cry
They will become little tyrants
But they won't remember why
Then when they are thwarted
By people in later life
They will become psychotic
And they won't make an ideal husband or wife

The spoiled baby grows into
The escapist teenager who's
The adult alchoholic who's
The middle-aged suicide

Oi!

So

Uncorrected personality traits
That seem whimsical in a child
May prove to be ugly in
A fully grown adult

Uh, yeah. I see the connection between a confused child and the fact that entropy, the most powerful universal law, dictates that nothing lasts forever.

Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay...

I'm glad you do, because I posted it expressly in response to your "Stella Blue" lyric.

Yeah, been meaning to check some of them out. Some good Acid Mother's Temple, too, if that's your kinda thing.
